I finally took it out and beat on it a little, nothing much just a dried up pond and a washout. I would rather find some of the weak links and break at home rather than the trail.

I just ordered a poison spider tramp stamp, ill have to cut it to fit around the tailgate hinges, maybe it will stiffen up the metal in that area, it actually flexes a little when i let the tailgate down and when i put weight on it

So i took it to my cousin's shop to install the rear d44 and gears and alot of other things, while we were under it we realized that the rear section of the frame was unrepairable, we took out the gas tank and disconnected the fuel lines and cut the frame right in front of the spring hanger, and this is where the real build begins...

You are getting in deep now. You should run some Xj leaves back there.
